It is on the back left corner of the frame. Remove the dust cover to locate the timer.

Ice is building in the freezer - I can manually defrost but auto doesn't seem to be working. What do I check - is this something I can fix? I'm pretty handy! Thanks! Noel


WHEN YOU JUST DON'T HAVE THE MODEL NUMBER Yes, tere are tings to check but I need the model number to help you bctter .The problem is most likely the defrost timer. I don't have your model number so I am going by what I can find about a Kenmore Elite.
The defrost timer is located most times insid the fresh food compartment and behind theconteol panel. Usually there is a hole that you can put a flathead screwdriver through and slowly turn the timer clockwise until the refrigerator compressor and fans stop. Let it stay like this for about 25 minuites until the compressor restarts. During this time the refrigerator should be in defrost. Open the freezer and listen for crackling and sizzling noise caused by defrost. If the compressor does not restart turn again clockwise and this will restart. If you nee the defrost timer here is a link below.

Refrigerator section on side by side losing cooling


Here is the Amana website with the manuals which should show you where the defrost timer etc. is located. Witht your model number and manual it will be a lot easer

And yes the defrost timer thermostat and heater are the most likely problem.

Do not let this keep running and running or you may lose your compressor too which means a lot more expense than now.

Compressor and fan work on cendenser, evaporater works, but the fan on the evaporater in the freezer rear cuts off after the initial run cycle. The coils then freeze. What are your suggestions replace...


Probably a bad defrost thermostat. The fan motor power runs through the defrost thermostat then to the fan motor.If the defrost thermostat is opening too soon, you get no fan and no defrost.
Yes you can replace this part yourself.

SQD26VW AMANA STOPS COOLING AT THE TOP,BOTTOM SEEMS TO BE COOLING AND WHEN PROBLE ACUURS THE WATER STOPS


Hi R,

Based on your description, the defrost limit has failed and should be replaced. The job takes about 30 minutes. The part you'll need is a WR50X55. You can find it online by plugging that number into a search engine, or pick one up locally at an appliance parts retailer.

UNPLUG THE FRIDGE BEFORE CONTINUING!!!

Clean out all the stuff in the freezer and remove the shelves. Then remove the panel in the back of the freezer section. You'll see the defrost limit clipped to the evaporator coils at the top right. Remember which tube it's clipped to, then take it off the tube.

Now clip the wires close to the limit and remove the limit. Strip those 2 wires back about 3/8" and connect them to the new limit one wire at a time. Cap these wires off with wire nuts. All you gotta do now is use one of the clips in the kit (I use the "U" shaped one, NOT the "W" shaped one) and clip it to the tube you removed the old one from. Rebuild everything and plug the fridge back in. That's it!

NOTE---> The fan inside the freezer will NOT come on immediately. The derfrost limit you just installed must get below 55 degrees first, then it'll turn the fan on. OK?

If there's anything else I can help you with, please write back. If not, and this has fixed your problem, please rate me.

Light is on, fan runs, compressor will not come on, compressor has never made a noise. Amana Distinctions model ARS2665A S/N 0010242568..side by side refrigerator freezer with ice maker.


Below bottom grate is a defrost timer. Turn slowly clockwise until you hear compressor start. If this works, replace defrost timer.
